The Watchman: December 1, 1885 (Vol. XI, No. 23)

Condition: See description

Chicago: Young Men's Christian Association, 1 December 1885. Folio. ii, pp. 264-276, ii. Very good. Light even age toning, with very few of the edge tears that plague these publications. Tight, clean and attractive issue of this semi-monthly, featuring contributions from Dwight L. Moody and other popular clerics of the day and numerous brief religious and inspirational news items. Interestingly, this copy retains the usually-absent OUTER wrapper (preceding the regular masthead page), which consists almost entirely of small advertisements. Uncommon to find in such nice, handleable condition. Moody served as president of the Chicago branch of the YMCA from 1865 to 1868 and remained closely involved with the organization thereafter; the year after this issue he assisted the national YMCA in creating the Student Volunteer movement, an important development for American Protestant missionaries.
